Distribution with fractions. -2(6 - 9/2 x)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Do you know how to remove brackets in this type of questions?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

no

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Nw let's take a simple example. 2(3-2) Let's first remove the bracket to solve this. 2(3-2)=2*3-2*2. Removing the brackets means to multiply the terms inside the bracket by the one outside. See if that makes a little sense

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Could you do that with the one up their ^ ? :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

-2(6-(9/2)x)=-2*6-2*(-9/2)x Nw do u get t?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what do u get when u multiply -2 by 6?

OpenStudy (anonymous):
